You take a step out of the corporate hustle of Sydney CBD, push open a large wooden door and enter an oasis of rock ’n’ roll, pizza, beer and fun crowds. First, a New York style pizza parlor with garlic hanging from the ceiling, checkerboard floors, and memorabilia covering the walls. From here, you push open a set of double doors and are transported to a dimly lit rock ‘n’ roll saloon, hosting live bands, craft beer, pinball machines and plenty of space to party.
This half dive bar, half New York style pizza parlor is open to 3am each night, bringing life and character to the heart of the CBD.

So glad I went. A little too dark inside for me this includes the lighting and atmosphere. Took me back to my younger years, not to say I am old but I am 50. Process: basement restaurant, two bars, two rooms. Find your table, get a menu then go to one of the bars and order your pizza. You will be given a number. There is a digital sign on the wall that displays when your number is ready for pick up. There is only one bar where you pick up your pizza and that was the first one you passed when you walked in. The guys behind the counter are absolutely without a doubt, FANTASTIC. Super friendly and super helpful. I ordered four local beers for the two of us and 2 pizzas. Pizzas are all the same size and easy for me to polish off (about a 12 inches). Pizzas were thin crust and crazy good. I had the soprano and Miami. Soprano with prosciutto ham and arugula and the Miami with ham and pineapple. Awesome. This is my go to place every time I go visit family. Nice job guys.
You'll either love it, or you'll leave. Wish more bars still existed with this simple and honest approach to service and quality. Good selection of beers. Easy choices for pizza. Good music if it's your cup of tea.
Yes! Definitely rate this place. Solid vibe, good pizza and decent drinks, always delivers. Head in late if you're up for a big night and maybe stay away too early on a Friday night until the suit blow ins take off. Sundays or any night with live music never disappoint. Yeah Frankies.
Such fun place! Coolest Happy Hour in Sydney! Awesome music, great vibe, great service, delicious pizza! Wish there was more places like this in Sydney! Great food & Rock n Roll in the heart of the city!
Best pizza I've ever had. Went in for a quick slice, and found myself going back to the bar for another slice moments later. I had the Godfather pizza, absolutely delicious. Very chill vibes inside and they even a pinball machine room with some great machines. 👍🏼
Had been wanting to try Frankies for quite some time. As others have said you will either love it or you will leave. It nails the stereotypical rock and roll hipster bar where everyone is very alternative. Its crowded, loud, and dark. That's a plus or a minus depending on your feelings, if you want a nice Italian family pizza this isn't the place for you. To comment on the service, it's not great as it's typical bar type service. Once you are being served it's great but trying to get there can be a challenge. Pizza was quite good, Meatball and pepperoni were favourites. I will say I found the crust far too chewy, my jaw actually started getting sore. Would return if I was in the mood and definitely worth a visit as there isn't many places left like it.
Giving a nostalgia of 20th century rock and heavy metal, mixed with the relevant aesthetic of a New York style pizza joint, this place is hard to miss and gives off the best more alternative club music, and vibes. One of the most unique nightlife destinations I've seen in Sydney so far, filled with good people and good drinks. Pizza is a little expensive and not the most gourmet of options, but not too many nightclubs sell pizza as is
Loud rock/alt music, good pizza, interesting decor and pinball machines! We were served quickly at the bar for our drinks by friendly a barman. Great vibe for a night out with friends - but you will need to shout above the music.
Too cool for school! In a good way :) - warning though: you might find a new passion for pinball and somehow eat a ton of pizza. The staff are standout friendly and smiley too; spot on Frankie's Pizza! We couldn't find the secret whisky bar though, so will have to go back, hehee. I also liked the darkness of the place, it felt snuggly and complimented my tired face :P (great for a casual date night).
Funky dive bar with fantastic pizza. If you are already half drunk, the best thing to do is order a spicy pizza with a cold beer. Have another few and then head over to the room next door where we saw a heavy metal karaoke content. Awesome host and great atmosphere!
Funny atmosphere. Pizzas were good but alcohol is overpriced. Quirky decor but staff were alternative to the point of being a little too cool. Rock n roll karaoke was fun to watch.
The most horrendous customer service we've ever experienced. My GF was waiting for 40 minutes to be served at the pizzeria section. Her recollection of events below: "Waiting patiently and both bar workers saw me without any intention to ask for my order. To my surprise after 25 minutes, one of them looked in my direction to which I wanted to place an order but he then decided to divert his attention and serve 7 girls who had arrived at the pizzeria bar after me. I left the premises thereafter with the utmost disgust. Besides those girls, throughout the whole time, there were at least 4 people that were served who arrived after me. Don't bother wasting your time and money at Frankie's Pizza unless you want to be treated like absolute garbage. No respect whatsoever"
Love this bar. Grungy. Dive-ish. Fun crowd. Good music. Friendly staff. Only down side is the pizza. With a name like Frankie's Pizza you'd expect their pizza game to be more on point. It tastes o.k if you're half cut. And most people are by the time they get there so they probably can't tell a slice of pizza from a mouldy drink coaster. Anyway, this place is great for raucous nights out with lots of dancing to 80s hair metal. But I'd get food somewhere else. Solid 4/5.
